Would you be angry if i told you that the United States is a Constitutional Republic?

A Constitutional Republic is the current form of government in the United States, which the founding fathers did not intend to be a democracy.[1] However, in recent years, many people have criticized the federal government for moving away from a Constitutional Republic, as defined by the Constitution, and towards a pure democracy.[2]

TeamLaw.org defines a Constitutional Republic as follows:

A Republic, by definition, has two principle elements. First, it is controlled by Law; therefore, it does not control Law. Second, it recognizes the private independent sovereign nature of each person (man or woman) of competent age and capacity; therefore, a Republic must be representative in its nature.

A Republic recognizes Law is unchangeable, or at least that it can only be changed by a higher source than government. In a Republic the concept of “collective sovereignty” cannot exist, except with recognition that the State or nation, as a body of sovereigns, can speak through one elected voice; though that one voice can never lawfully interfere with the private rights of the individual sovereigns.

“A Constitutional Republic” is a government created and controlled, at least, by the Law of a Constitution.

Update:

The Constitution of the United States of America was, in Law, a foundation based on the Bible, the Magna Carta and the Declaration of Independence. Those documents recognize man’s sovereignty, the divine nature of man’s creation and man’s divine right to Life, Liberty, the means of acquiring and possessing Property, and the pursuit of happiness.[3]

Update 2:

You do realize that when the Democrats make our country Socialist, we can all say bye, bye to the constitution of the United States.

    No. I would merely tell you that you don't know what a republic is. It simply means "not a monarchy". And "constitutional" is meaningless because just about every country has one. I live in a country with the rule of law and it is most certainly not a republic.

    The US is a democracy...a restricted democracy. And the restrictions are what make it a Republic. But still it's a democracy. Republic is just a sub-category of the general democracy category. If you don't believe me, believe this:

    "The United States is a federal republic and a constitutional representative democracy. The "federal" part is one of three basic types of organization of power — unitary, confederal, and federal. Most nations are unitary in nature (local government with a powerful national government).Aug 10, 2010

    "A constitutional republic is a form of government in which the head of the state, as well as other officials, are elected by the country’s citizens to represent them."

    Err -- what definition are you using ?

    You are correct. There is a reason why teachers no longer teach history and no longer do the pledge of allegiance and instead have turned to little more than baby sitting and political indoctrination.

    The US was in no way founded on the Christian religion.

      I guess you're not all that bad, at least you agree that that our country is a Constitutional Republic with a democracy.

    Okay, so what does that mean for day-to-day activities? Because it sure doesn't mean that the electoral college can realistically do whatever it wants.

    Update: Okay, since the US was in no way founded on the Christian religion (See the Treaty of Tripoli) I know you're full of sh!t. Also conservapedia is not a valid source.
